Super progress John. I'm curious how you're doing the brake pedal.

John

I'm amazed on how quickly you move forward , considering the amount of scratchbuilding you do.

It's not my taste but I'll give you credit for thinking outside the box,,,,,,,,WAAAAAAAY outside,,,,,, like across the street from the box ..

To all the ones who do all this scratchbuild stuff like brass frames, an engine from chunks of aluminum , making bodies from sheet plastic or a complete car from scratch is awe inspiring yet almost intimidating. So my hats off to you all.

My how the times have changed from the days when we used moms sewing thread for spark plug wiring.

sorry for the subtle hijak, I just had to get that out
